It’s official: Xiaomi will be launching the Redmi Note 3 in less than 6 months of the Redmi Note 2 launch.
Xiaomi teased what we believed to be the Redmi Note 2 Pro prior to today. The company revealed (surprisingly) that it’s going to be a Redmi Note 3 and not a Redmi Note 2s/Pro/etc., which comes as a bit of a surprise because the Redmi Note 2 has hardly spent any time on the market so far.
Thi will also be Xiaomi’s first ever phone to have a fingerprint sensor. And — love it or hate it — it’ll be on the back of the phone, Huawei style.
Not much of a hardware upgrade is expected on the phone, besides the fingerprint sensor. It’ll still have the MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795) SoC, and will come in 2/3GB RAM variants and a 13 mega-pixel/5 mega-pixel camera combo.
Xiaomi have also officially given a sneak peek at the Redmi Note 3. And it also officially looks like a Meizu! See below for reference:
There’s going to be more stuff from Xiaomi besides just the smartphone we’re talking about. A picture posted by the company shows a big box, with a caption suggesting that ‘even girls can carry’. What could that be?

So, what do you think about Xiaomi giving the Redmi Note 2 hardly any time on the market? Xiaomi pissed some of its Mi 4i customers after it released the Mi 4c, could the move to launch the Redmi Note 3 again prove to be counter-productive?
